I tried to back up the conents of a IMAP folder to a nested folder in my local
inbox. However, nested folders don't appear for my local folders, only for my
remote IMAP accounts.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make a nested folder in your local Inbox
2. Select some messages in a remote account 
3. Right click and choose "copy to" -> "local folders" -> "Inbox"

Actual Results:  
4. Notice how the nested folders don't appear.

Expected Results:  
Provided a submenu listing the nested folders the same as does using the other
IMAP accounts as a destination.

This is easily worked around by using the main "Message" menu, then choosing
"copy" -> "Local folders" -> "Inbox" -> "2000" (or whatever your nested folder
name is).

Restarting thunderbird seems to also fix the problem. My guess is thunderbird
doesn't monitor local folder creations, only using the folder layout it finds at
startup for its menus.

Further poking around makes me wonder if it may also be related to bug
#254507....sorry about that, missed it during the presubmission search.
